I originally posted this on my blog.
There was no need to reconfigure the slide switch to a mute button and bury the screen lock in the software. The screen lock switch was convenient and I used it a lot. I don’t care about a mute switch that actually doesn’t mute all volumes. Apparently it is only for system notifications or something? Because I was watching a video on Devour (best YouTube site ever) with the switch muted and sound still coming from the speaker. Guess they decided the iPad needed a button like the green/+ window button on OSX. I’ve been using Macs for years and still haven’t figured out what that blasted button is suppose to do. So ya hear me Steve? I want my lock button back, or at least the option to switch it back.
